FINALLY, the debut of the Cole Haan leather jacket Santa Mom & Dad bought me for Christmas!! Ahhh, my dad picked it out. He's got great taste, no?? Anyway, I'm so happy that typically rainy Oregon has been sunny today and the last couple of days. I love when that happens so I don't ruin my new leather swag. Ha.

How is the week treating you all? Unfortunately my hip has been bothering me a lot lately. That has put a halt to my running. Huge bummer since I don't mind running in the freezing cold at all, as long as it's not raining too. So this week I'm staying focused on strength training. I'm really working on getting my arms back to where they were awhile ago. Whenever I slack on lifting they just get scrawny fast! That's not a good look- I'm into being toned. Anyway, lifting just makes me feel so good! Do you lift? Don't be scuuuurd, it won't bulk you up if you do it right! I think a lot of women get scared they'll be super huge if they lift. That's really a myth, people! The truth is, lifting increases your metabolism and it takes a lot of training to look like a man. Seriously. One thing I do is keep it on the lighter side but increase repetitions. I also keep my hand weights near my television. The rule is, if I'm watching I have to move too. So I'll get some weighted lunges, abs and arm exercises in while I watch.
